The first was a part of my series linked to Simple Mom's Project: Simplify 2012, a post showing the organization of our pantry:
Clutter Hotspot #2 - Pantry/Kitchen
The second was a redesign of our island. Not only a cosmetic change, but for function in swapping the original doored cabinets for more drawers. We also usurped some of the seating overhang for additional storage in:
Vive la Différence
The 3rd one was part of my series explaining the design and construction of our house, a 98% DIY project by our family, now all shared on this page:
Our (DIY'd) Home for 10
Also, like Pat, I'd like to recognize and thank the two blogs that pushed the most reading traffic my way:
I first met Laxsupermom on the Gardenweb Kitchen Forum, and she is not only responsible for sending a lot of clicks my way, but was one of the people who answered a lot of questions and gave valuable advice in setting up and continuing my blog. She writes Sugar & Spice in the land of Balls & Sticks. She seems to have taken quite a hiatus, I think to be more present in her family's life, which I really admire and applaud!
I met the following lovely lady when I was about five, and she was just newborn! Jennifer writes Another journey....
She is also a Christian homeschooling mom of many, sharing her challenges of momming and schooling her youngest boys, who are adoptees from China with separate challenges. She also happens to be my cousin. ;-)
Lastly, I want to express my appreciation to all who read and comment; it means so much to me, and the others on the ends of fun relationships I've formed here in BloggyLand. There are so many blogs I read and enjoy, with authors I so respect. And, thanks, also to those who link from my blog to Amazon to do your various shopping, helping out our family coffers... Mostly, helping add to our Home library!
I can't believe another year has come and gone so quickly!
